The "Gatekeeper" cottage is our first cottage here at Stonehaven. The inside of the main floor is completely finished and beautiful! There is a natural stone fireplace in the living room, a full kitchen, a full bath on the main floor and a half bath in the sleeping loft. One must be able to climb ladder stairs to the sleeping loft. Guests are welcome to hiking trails and the outdoors of our 40 acre property.
Apple maps is accurate for getting to Stonehaven Cottages, but google maps is still in the process of placing our address correctly on their system. Our cottage is smoke free. If you smoke, you are welcome to smoke outside on our porch that wraps around the entire front of the cottage or anywhere outdoors where the smoke does not affect others. Fireworks of any type are strictly forbidden on the property.
Tuscobia Lake is a beautiful spring fed wilderness lake. During the summer months most of the lake is very weedy and is best suited for canoeing, row boats, and kayaks. The north end of the lake however, is 24 feet deep with much less weeds, and our guests are able to take a mile or so pontoon ride down to that end and swim off of the pontoon. The lake itself is visible from the front porch of the cottage, but it is about a quarter mile walk to our dock area. There are also several campfire areas that overlook the lake for our guests to enjoy.
Guests have the whole main level and sleeping loft to themselves and can also use any of our hiking trails and campfire areas throughout the 40 acre property. We also have a pontoon, paddle boat, canoe, and rowboat that can be rented on Tuscobia Lake by any of our guests. When the walk out basement is completed next spring guests will have access to that area as well, which will add another sleeping area and another full bathroom. The basement is unoccupied while guests are staying with us.
Interaction with guests
As owners, we are living on the property so if you need anything, we are just a phone call away. One of us is available almost 100% of the time.
